Course Summary

About This Course

This MSc degree in Exercise Rehabilitation aims to allow graduates to develop and apply principles of exercise-based preventative intervention, management of health and wellbeing, and rehabilitation to individuals who are involved in a variety of rehabilitative settings (e.g., healthy ageing, chronic disease). The degree will assimilate evidence-driven physical and psychological approaches that will equip you with a multi-disciplinary perspective on the role of habitual physical activity and/or exercise when working with individuals in rehabilitative settings.

Professional Accreditation

You’ll be able to use some of the knowledge and skills that they acquire to prepare for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) supervisory experience training, which is normally a pre-requisite of the Association’s professional accreditation.

BASES also organise an annual student conference. Some of our former MSc students have won prestigious awards for ‘Best Postgraduate Verbal Presentation’ and ‘Best Postgraduate Poster Presentation’ at the BASES Student Conferences. These awards are open to MSc and PhD students from all UK Universities and the fact that our students have repeatedly won awards is an indication of the excellent quality of teaching and research training you’ll experience on our course.


All the School’s postgraduate programmes are designed (with further training where appropriate) to enhance the career prospects of Sport, Health and Exercise Science graduates. Career destinations of Bangor postgraduates include: the Home Country Sports Institutes, National Governing Bodies, the Olympic Medical Institute, Professional sports teams and organisations, the fitness industry, the NHS (hospitals and Primary Care Trusts), Teaching and Education (after completing a Postgraduate Certificate of Education). Further postgraduate study (ie Doctoral research) is another vocational route.

This specific degree will equip you with the knowledge & skills to address societal problems including an aging population and lifestyle diseases such as obesity. Specifically, this degree in Exercise Rehabilitation will prepare you for careers in healthcare (e.g., NHS and private settings such as Spire Healthcare); the fitness industry (e.g., Nuffield Health); the health and well-being industry (e.g., Complementary and alternative medicine providers); and Public Health (e.g., Public Health England and Wales).

Many of our recent graduates have combined this degree with vocational qualifications or further postgraduate study to allow careers in Teaching and Education, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Dietetics, Cardiac Rehabilitation, and research.


Project management skills are integral for many employability pathways. This module has been developed to help you carry out your own project in an area of your choosing. This choice may be based on future career aspirations, previous experience and expertise, or equally, just because you are passionate about a particular research question. However, your project should be driven by a goal to contribute in a meaningful way to the current knowledge base within a specific area of interest to you.
